contractors in Russia and Kazakhstan and is listed on the Frankfurt Stock
Exchange (SDAX). C.A.T. oil provides a range of high quality services, which
enable oil and gas producers to extend lifecycle of their fields or bring yet

drilling vertical, inclined and horizontal wells for extraction of oil and gas.
In total, the Company has already invested more than EUR 400 million in growth
and diversification since its IPO in 2006.
Following the successful set up of high class drilling in 2011-12, C.A.T. oil

Services" (fracturing, cementing and completion operations) and "Drilling,
Sidetracking and IPM (Integrated Project Management)".
